When Among Us was announced for Xbox Game Pass for PC, many console players were left a little disappointed at the thought of missing out on one of this year’s most popular games. Now, Microsoft has announced that the Among Us will be coming to Xbox consoles and Xbox Game Pass in 2021.
An updated post over on Xbox Wire simply states that Among Us will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Game Pass for console sometime in 2021. No other details have been provided.
Among Us is an online multiplayer game for four to ten players who work together to repair their spaceship on its return to civilization. However, one (or more) the crewmates has been replaced by a dangerous alien imposter who sets out to sabotage the ship and kill all the other crewmates before it reaches home. You must figure out who the imposter is and boot them off the ship, or complete all your assigned tasks before the imposter kills too many crewmates to arrive home safe. Throughout 2020, Among Us became a viral sensation largely down to big names on Twitch playing and streaming the game. As of September, developer Inner Sloth reported that Among Us had passed 3 million players across all platforms.
Among Us is coming to Xbox consoles and Xbox Game Pass in 2021, but is already available to play with Xbox Game Pass for PC
